teams still waiting for the go ahead to search a west virginia coal mine for four missing workers. and as they wait, we are learning federal safety officials cited that mine for two violations on the very day the explosion killed at least 25 miners there. one of the violations for an improper cable splice and the other, the other was for inadequate maps of escape routes. it is not unusual for a mine to get more than one violation in a day. after all, it received 458 last year. but you can bet issues like this will come up in the just announced federal investigation into this disaster. meantime the obama administration has recently approved new environmental regulations that will change the way certain mining is done in west virginia and other parts of appalachian shah. the new rules are intended to cut pollution in our waters. critics argue the financial costs are way too high. molly henneberg with the news and new information from d.c. tonight. molly? >> hi, shep. coal companies dispute the science. but the environmental protection agency the e.p.a. says mountain top mine somethi
